Re: Teaching Aikido - Require Coaching Course?

I read around in this thread yesterday and intend to re read more thoroughly, but for now, I noticed Cherie Cornmesser's post (#14 of this thread) and liked it something on the line of "not mandatory but could be helpful"

I like what Tony just said about gut instinct. I was fortunate to have good groups of students at the local YM and the YW in the next town, and while I taught some basic techniques and things that developed from those, (most of which I had seen others teach either previously ... or at least afterwards so I was validated) it was still rather recent after training daily in a major dojo and after moving to my home town, attending seminars and major dojos often .... Anyway I was fortunate in that, when I was teaching...
